It seems that some people are confused about what the CLIQUE is and what it is trying to accomplish. Let me see if I can explain. Really, the CLIQUE only has one simple goal; completely ruin marathon. Don’t believe me? Let’s take a closer look at some of the members.
Treellama – For quite some time, he has been single-handedly ruining Alephone. There used to be many developers working on the alephone engine, but now it’s pretty much down to just one person. Ever wonder why that is? Many of the previous alephone developers tried to help add cool new features, and once Treellama joined the group of developers, the helpful ones all started to disappear. Coincidence? Every time someone makes a helpful suggestion for a new direction for Alephone, the idea gets shot down just to make sure Alephone gets ruined even more. Hell, just look at the list of feature requests that seem to never make it into the engine. This is no mistake. Remember how much you liked NIBs? Yeah? Well, it’s gone now.
RyokoTK – Ryoko has been an administrator for the Pfhorums for a long time now. I haven’t been counting, but the number of people that have been banned for no reason must just be massive. He is the reason you aren’t allowed to voice your opinion about anything on the Pfhorums. If you disagree with anything he says, not only will you be kicked out of the Pfhorums, you will disappear from the face of the planet. When was the last time anyone heard anything from Macsforever? The Pfhorums have done a great job of documenting every horrible thing RyokoTK has done, so I think I’ll let you read through that stuff if you need more proof.
W’rkncacnter – My job is to make sure no one feels welcome anywhere. Have a bad idea? A good idea? I don’t care, I’m going to shoot it down. Nothing new or cool happens in the community because of me. Remember that time I was a total dick to you for no reason? Well, chances are I don’t, because I’m an asshole to people so often I can’t remember one thing from another.
Irons – Irons’ CLIQUE job is top secret. I doubt any of you would understand it even if I told you, so don’t worry about it too much.
I’m going to leave figuring out what jobs the other CLIQUE members have as an exercise for the reader. Just remember, if anything annoys you in the marathon community, you’ll know who’s behind it.
